Why Didn't Colin Kaepernick Get Any Heisman Consideration?
Another thing. Peep the stats. This season Kaepernick ran for 1,184 yards and 20 touchdowns. He passed for 2,830 yards with 20 touchdowns against 7 interceptions. Do the math, that's over 4,000 yards of total offense. Comparable to Heisman frontrunner Cam Newton's stat sheet. But Kaepernick can't even get a whiff of New York unless it's on a Rand McNally map. What makes him any different than Newton. I guess since Newton had a bigger stage and did it in more spectacular fashion Kaepernick is a mere afterthought. I'm not knocking Big Cam, but the very best deserve to be considered for the Heisman. Just because there is more of a spotlight for some players doesn't mean others with less pub shouldn't get credit.
To me the Heisman is becoming no more than a sham. There should be more players considered and just because a certain players talents are on display more than others doesn't mean great seasons shouldn't be recognized.
